    Dear friends,
    Am yet to read all the posts and enjoy everything bit by bit.
    Just curious to know about taking alamottu and agathi mottu to USA for my daughters seemantham.
    Havent got into the affair yet and am doing some home work, when I bumped on this thread!
    Please give me tips, where and how much this is bought and how this can be carried in flight without the airport authorities confiscate it saying its an agri product!
    Love

    I know this thread has been idle for sometime... but please reply to it..

    i ahve some doubts...

    is sumangali prarthanai done before seemantham?
    how many bangles max can I wear on hands?
    Does poochootal and valagapu have ethi erakkal or is it upto the family traditions?
    and i read somewhere tht during poochootal there have plates with different items and they are covered. And then lady is asked to pick up some thing and then gender is guessed. Its all a game at the end of the day right.

    Hello Chithra ma'm...
    great post and is really helpful for all moms-to-be.. thanks for writing this.. i've few queries...
    - My valaikaapu and seematham are planned together.. so should there be two sets of paruppu thengai or only one set used for both ?
    -My mom was asking about something called 'payaru vellam' for seemantham.. should this be kept as part of seer ?

    TIA
